The Politics of Legitimacy: Wealth, Voice, and Nation in Qatar

Project Description

The project challenges the theoretical assumptions of the place of money and the nature of politics in rent-based societies. In order to obtain reliable data, Mitchell gathered empirical evidence from multiple sources: original surveys of Qatari citizens and expatriates, extensive ethnographic observations and Arabic interviews, and Arabic media analysis.
